KVRX - FM 91.7 - Austin, TX

none of the hits, all of the time

KVRX is the student radio station of The University of Texas at Austin. That means students do everything: we deejay, we promote, we solicit record ... See more labels for music, we raise money, we hang around the studio making fun of passers-by -- everything. KVRX broadcasts from our studios at the HSM on the UT campus, at 91.7 on your FM dial and live over the Internet 24-7. Our request line number is (512)495-KVRX (512-495-5879); your voice is always a welcome sound. You can also request online. When is KVRX on the Air? Here's the deal. Our friends at KOOP are on the air from 9am till 7pm(CST) during the week, and from 9am till 10pm(CST) during the weekend. The rest of the time 91.7FM is broadcasting KVRX. KOOP is as committed to playing an alternative to normal, dull radio as we are; they just go about it differently. Their personality can only be gauged by checking out their web site or tuning in - but we like each other a lot & often show up at each other's place for dinner. None of the Hits, All of the Time We think that KVRX has the widest variety of music and other programming in all of Austin. Our mission is to play music you just won't hear anywhere else -- none of the hits, all of the time (catchy, eh?). We maintain a huge "new bin" of the latest music -- not just "alternative" rock but world music, hip-hop, blues, jazz, folk, country, techno, and metal. Our deejays play no less than five of these genres an hours during regular free-form programming which guarantees that every time you tune into KVRX you will be hearing something different. What Can I Expect to Hear? We loathe to bog our deejays down with rules & regulation, but the Mission of KVRX requires the deejays to play, per hour: * Five items from the aforementioned "new bin" * five different genres of music * At least two Texas artist (in any genre) In addition, under FCC rules KVRX is allowed to play artistic material that some might find indecent from the hours of 10pm till 6am. Listeners are warned, trust us. Those Who Came Before, Those Who Never Left KVRX has a history of providing great music to Austin; And it keeps going, because in addition to stumbling through their own weekly shows, deejays must show their love for the station by contributing to the mighty task of keeping the station running. We call this "volunteer hours" and you can get them by doing nearly anything: reviewing music, distributing flyers, helping at benefits and at the KVRX table on the West Mall, working in production... why, even helping on the KVRX web page counts! If you are a student and need info on volunteering, try emailing the volunteer director. Thanks for Visiting We're really glad that you've visited KVRX and hope that you'll want to tune in, if only to see what all the fuss is about. Free-form shows that rock, roll, slide and shuffle; specialty shows that trance, yodel, cha-cha and snap; on-air personalities that will become giants in corporate board rooms and/or state penitentiaries. What are you waiting for, an engraved invitation?
